Greeted with a warm welcome, Nikiwe sits down with the owner of a local eatery to chat about traditional Creole food.

Greeted with a warm welcome, Nikiwe Bikitsha sits down with the owner of Escale Creole to chat over a traditional Creole meal under the veranda.

The cosy traditional family-style restaurant opened its doors in the picturesque garden in Moka over 20 years ago, serving only the best of the country’s authentic island cuisine.

Our families have always had the habit to welcome people on Sundays for lunches.

Marie-Christine Forget, co-owner of Escale Creole

A mixture of African, Asia and European cooking, the Mauritian Creole cuisine is purely organic and is prepared fresh daily by the owner Marie-Christine’s mother Majo - the local chef.

While she was not initially too convinced about starting a traditional restaurant, Marie-Christine’s mother has since embraced her calling and pours her heart and soul into every meal, cooked in true Mauritian style.

She said traditional food is eaten only at home... I said, let’s try to invite the world.

Passed from generation to generation, the eatery’s dishes are inspired by Grandma Simone’s recipes and sums up who the Creole people truly are.
